SEATTLE — Amazon may be on the hook to make changes to improve worker safety at a Kent warehouse following a new court ruling.


Employees at packing stations are seen at Amazon's Kent fulfillment center on June 11, 2020.

After state regulators cited Amazon for failing to create a safe work environment, Amazon sued the Department of Labor and Industries in October. Amazon argued the department had stacked the system against employers, in part because the company is expected to implement some of the proposed changes even while Amazon appeals the citation.
